The Departed

Scorsese worst film ever, so say I.

Maybe someone could digitally erase all of “Shutter Island” while they’re at it, a movie so dumb my brain still hurts to think about it!

It’s so ham-fisted even Ralph Wiggum noticed it:

Reasonable men can disagree. Scorsese has a lot of films in his oeuvre that I think are worse, The Aviator, Gangs of New York, Kundun, and yet these films are still better than a lot of other directors best work.

Outside “Taxi Driver” and “Goodfellas”, there isn’t much of his work that I’m particularly fond of.

Damn, I hated that overrated movie.

in regards to Scorcese…he has only done 3 movies in my world: The Color of Money, Goodfellas, and Casino.

As far as removing the rat in this scene…wtf-ever. If that is the useless shit someone has the excess cash to throw at and spend an ounce of energy debating good on you for it I guess. I’ll be over here sipping bourbon.

Next mission - add the unfinished deleted scenes back into Galaxy Quest.

Admittedly, though, centering the image on the golden dome of the Boston State House is also very hamfisted: an image of the shining, incorruptible “city on the hill” prophesied by the Puritans yet never more than glimpsed by the denizens of the movie’s criminal underworld. Scorsese isn’t a very subtle filmmaker!

Jeeze I thought the Departed was rather good. King’s of New York not so much. This seems stupid tho. I think the potato salad campaign was more interesting/useful.

Is there a Kickstarter to redub the lines in English?

I recently saw it for the first time. I should have done something else.

How about a Kickstarter to replace The Departed with Infernal Affairs?

The Stephen Chow movie from 1998? It’s hilarious.

I notice the Kickstarter doesn’t mention how he’s going to obtain the rights to a major Hollywood movie. I guess he’ll just say “fair use” and post a 2-minute video on Youtube and call it a day?
